  1. Greetings all– I am still editor of the Echo Park Patch and loving, loving, loving it. Eastsider, I can see why you might have been confused. A technical error in our CMS pushed LE Lindsey Baguio’s tweets through my website for a bit yesterday. However, that should in now way have been seen as a formal announcement of any changes at Echo Park Patch where growth has been phenomental, thanks in part to the support of the Eastsider. Hope you’ll somehow remove or correct this fact, before it goes viral. Anthea

  2. @ Anthea. I was surprised as anyone else to see someone else at the top of your site. I will make the change.

  3. With regard to the Daily News post, if people have already been arrested for suspicion of or arrested in the act of committing a crime, why is it a moral issue to run their prints against a Federal database when you book them?

  4. Tequila crawl? Is that really necessary?

  5. Re the mention of a Tequila Crawl. That story you linked to says absolutely nothing about a Tequila Crawl! It merely talks about the guy, who launched his Tequila Real de Mexico out of Echo Park two years ago, getting his family’s Tequila named the official tequila of the Silver Lake Jubilee and the Sunset Junction Street Fair. It notes he first got the tequila started at the Short Stop in Echo Park and has now gotten into into other bars in the area.

  6. Thanks Henry. The article does mention the possibility of a Tequila Crawl–as well as other marketing events. But, yes, the thrust of the piece is about this local entrepreneur and how he’s been building his family’s business here in the community.
